Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more like Jesus'
Discipleship is not a destination, it’s a direction.
First Church Tables are about taking a ‘believer in Jesus’ and moving them towards ‘looking more and more like Jesus’.
First Church Tables is a place where your belief begins to become part of the DNA of who you are in your everyday life, always growing in the direction toward Jesus.
Your First Church Table will meet once each week for a few months, at the church or in someone’s home. You’ll talk through a book, scripture or just life. There are First Church Tables for adults in several stages in their life.
We also offer Academy Classes for those who prefer a classroom style learning environment.
Depending on the Table Group you choose, we offer Children's Programming for kids of all ages.

House - Young Adult Table Group (25-35 years old)
Offsite location, Wednesday Evenings, 7pm - ongoing
In House we're looking for real friendship, genuine community, and (like everyone) a place to belong. We want to matter. We want to have a purpose. For us that purpose is found in Jesus and the path He's laid for us. Our group is generally between 25 - 35 years old (although no one checks IDs at the door).
The Ways of the Alongsider.
Benton Heights Campus, Sunday mornings, 9:30am-10:30am - Ongoing
Disciple-making can be intimidating. You might think that someone who makes disciples has to be a teacher, a missionary, or someone who is seminary trained. Would it surprise you to know that disciple-making is just a lifestyle in which you offer people love, comfort, and encouragement where they live, work, and play?
Despite our weaknesses and fears, Jesus invites us to participate in the Great Commission by helping people live for Christ in the here and now. All you have to do is live intentionally, love God, and journey alongside others―life to life.
